      Villain is a fish 8 hands 38/0.

      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.25(BB) Replayer
      SB ($35.43)
      BB ($32.94)
      UTG ($23.70)
      UTG+1 ($25)
      Hero ($41.70)
      BTN ($17.51)

      Dealt to Hero J:heart: A:diamond:

      UTG calls $0.25, fold, Hero raises to $1, fold, fold, fold, UTG calls $0.75

      FLOP ($2.35) 3:club: J:diamond: 2:club:

      UTG checks, Hero bets $1.50, UTG raises to $3, Hero calls $1.50

      TURN ($8.35) 3:club: J:diamond: 2:club: 4:club:

      UTG bets $4, Hero folds

      UTG wins $7.97

      Am I better off just reraising him on the flop and saving myself from guessing the rest of the hand? Obviously the flush get sthere on the turn which is terrible for me but I've seen fish take this line with AA-QQ as well as hands like QJ.

      I think you should start by betting bigger on the flop. Fish are known to call way too much, make sure to value bet big enough when you hit.

      When you get minraised I wouldn't fold but I would instantly change to pot control mode and try to get to showdown cheaply.

      I think calling a turn bet is close, especially given his actual sizing. Usually it would be a fold against a bigger size. You can't go either way but I usually prefer being more nitty against fish because when they show aggression it's more likely they have a hand.
